Bike Lima

Get your cycle on with this two-wheeled journey through the ages that will show you the mystical Inca sites of centuries gone by, as well as boho neighbourhoods and modern, hip hangouts of Lima!

Much more than just a Lima city tour, this epic bike adventure will show you all kinds of hidden gems inside the city, and outside of it too! From the ancient to the artistic, get ready to see a side to Lima you’ve never seen before.

You’ll begin this Lima tour by meeting your guide at the archaeological site of Huaca Pucllana, where you’ll dive right into the deep end of the Inca legends of Peru. Here, your local guide will tell you all about the pre-Inca pyramids that once served as a centre for administration and ceremonies hundreds of years ago. This site had incredible religious significance for the Incas, and with a local to guide you, you’ll learn all about the secret Inca stories.

Next on this Lima bike tour you’ll travel up to Morro Solar, one of the hills surrounding the city where you can take in a stunning view of the shimmering Lima Bay – an unmissable sight and one of the best things to do in Lima. After a quick safety briefing from your local guide, it’s time to hop on your bike and cruise downhill, stopping off at several points along the way to gain insights into Lima’s fascinating history.

After you’ve worked those legs a little, you’ll stop to have a rest at a quaint seaside neighbourhood named Chorillos, favoured by fisherman and full of Lima local tales. Your journey will then take you onwards towards the bohemian district of Barranco, a lively a vibrant area full of artists, musicians, and writers. Got your fix of local neighbourhoods yet? Wait, there’s more!

Moving ahead on this tour of Lima's neighbourhoods, you’ll glide through areas full of street art and murals, stopping off every now and then to take some sweet photos that will make friends back home ooze with jealousy. You’ll ride up along the coast, taking in the gorgeous views of the glittering Pacific Ocean before riding into the Miraflores district and heading for ‘Love Park’.

This final stop on your Lima tour is reminiscent of Gaudi’s work and dedicated to all things love and lovers. Soak up the dreamy atmosphere, admire the romance-inspired statues and sculptures, and reflect on the beauty of Lima before you.

As your tour comes to a close, your local guide will be happy to point you in the direction of more cool spots in this neighbourhood, or tell you how to find your way back to your accommodation.
